I just finished writing the previous post about being depressed, and I've noticed myself being grumpy and negative about everything I see or hear. Trying to distract myself, I turned on the television. There was Kathy Lee, talking about sitting in the sunshine at her home in Key West. I got mad at her... always talking about her home in Connecticut and her home in Key West. These days, when ordinary people are losing their homes I think it's very tacky. So I switch to HGTV to watch House Hunters. How can that make me mad? There is a young couple, complaining because every house they see doesn't have granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Gosh, when I was their age I lived in a crummy basement apartment! More bad vibes.
So then I went back to my laptop and looked at the news. Big mistake! There was an article about how the GOP in Washington might shut down the government over health care. Now I am really angry!
Maybe I should just go read a book. I have a better idea; I will put all this angry energy into cleaning my house and throwing stuff out!
